No opinion of CEO

I worked at Sears part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Discount on products in the store, perks of $2 per Sears credit card application you convinced a customer to complete

Cons

Very unorganized, low pay, company values (they wanted you to do whatever you had to do (lie, cheat, steal) to make sure that you signed customers up for credit card sales), work environment (co-workers and managers were unfriendly)

Advice to Management

Get to know your employees, be more hands on, listen to employee complaints. Hiding in your office while the cashiers do all of the work will not help Sears stay in business long.

    I worked at Sears full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a big place and in theory lots of opportunities. Sears is always hiring in some role and you probably will get the opportunity to sharpen your teeth and skills. A lot of good people work there. My favorite thing about SHC was my co-workers.

    Cons

    Top management. The top-down directives take over your life and most times make no sense. Also that "matrix" environment can be challenging. Lastly, the way the businesses are set up is a recipe for failure. Everyone fighting against each other for their own unit vs working together for the greater good. Each may win a battle, but the war is dreadfully lost in all cases.

    Advice to Management

    Re-think how the businesses are run. The current format does not work in the best interest of the company at whole and it shows. Also, please reconsider how top management works within the corporation. It is a terrible thing when ANYone who has to work directly with top management feels like they need prescription drugs to get through the project.
